In a judgment of 2 May 2018, the Administrative Jurisdiction Division ruled that legal protection against an administrative warning is possible if it is based on a statutory provision. In addition, that warning must be a condition for the imposition of a sanction (fine, order subject to a penalty, etc.) in the event of a subsequent violation. This means that the person who is confronted with such a warning can appeal against it with administrative remedies. In doing so, the Division follows the conclusion of advocate general Widdershoven, on which we have written in a previous blog post.
